Audiotalaia is really proud of presenting the work of Alex AlarcÃ³n aka Sustainer. We are happy to host a small part of the extensive oeuvre done by this artist from Barcelona. For this 30th release on Audiotalaia we have a two pieces EP keeping the essence of sustainer's project. There is a topic, a concept a theme and there is a kindness composing all those sustained lines of drones that had become a trade mark for Alex AlarcÃ³n.
A few years ago AlarcÃ³n recorded a wall piano. He asked a friend to play sustained notes allowing the sound to disappear slowly. After those sessions recording the piano, AlarcÃ³n had been using that material in some live sessions and concert. Finally after many years he has recovered that material and used to produce a diptych that shows the strength and the vision of true experimenter in ambient music.
The album has been mastered by Ian Hawgood, musician and founder of Home Normal Label and Tokyo Droning among others.
